  1. LOT trackday @ Zandvoort Sept 2019
  2. I can't fault Option 1, They carried out a the insurance repair on my S1, the repair and paint quality was faultless 👍

    My Little Girl.

    So sorry to hear this Kurt, Mine and Debbie's thoughts and best wishes go out to you all.
  4. Not a fan, As above, looks like a child had designed and drew it 👎
  5. No no no....... what are some people thinking 😮
  6. Great write up Jon and I'm sure the sprint is a great car and the lightest in the current Lotus range, however as you said is it £20/£30K more that your current model, definitely not.
  7. Not a fan of the aftermarket LED lights, As a previous owner of an S1 I prefer the original lights 👍
  8. Very interesting...... I didn't see any of these on my runners, at £40 a set I'm sure these can be made if you can find some suitable material, I may have a go next time I have some free time over a weekend. Thanks for sharing
  9. Play in the runners is common, I had mine replaced under warranty in my V6 but within a few months the new one was the same, In the end I took the seats out and squeezed the runners and described in the link above, they didn't need doing again before I sold the car, I've also done the same in my Elise Cup about 12 months ago and so far they are still OK, even doing 6 track days
  10. Sorry to hear of your problem Mark, I would try some of the simple things 1st - Check engine/transmissions mounts are OK with no excessive movement Check linkages all look OK, you may need to adjust but this is best done by a specialist Check oil level, some other car manufacturers suffer from jumping out of gear when the oil level is low or oil is old If none of the above don't sort it then the gearbox will need to come apart and investigated, Fingers crossed hopefully not 🤞 Andy.
  11. Hi Andy, Are you sure both runners are fully engaging when in the locked position.... If they are then you probably need to carry out some adjustments, I've had to tweak my seat runners in my previous V6 Exige and my current S3 Elise, Info on what to do can be found <HERE> Andy.
  12. Great, It would be nice for an S1 to join us
  13. Fingers crossed it was a combination of the cap and air in the system 🤞
  14. Hi Paul, First of all welcome to MLOC I'm pretty sure you have HGF, Mine only should on my S1 when on track with continuous high rev's, similar symptoms to what you describe but nothing evident when driving on the road, No oil/water mix or emulsification in the header tank. As you say, to be sure get it to someone who can pressure test, Gav is still in business, probably best to call him, there's also PJS in Burton and Top Gear automotive in Wolves, All Lotus specialist and well known & respected in the Midlands area. If you decide to do the head gasket at least you know it will be done, The risk with the engine swap is you could end up with the same or /& other problems...... Andy.
  15. Absolutely stunning car Jonny but I agree with Keith, Use it and enjoy it Life's too short........
